KETO CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE – GLUTEN FREE, PALEO, LOW CARB

This Keto Chocolate Mug Cake makes an incredible treat whenever your sweet tooth needs a fix. It is made from coconut flour, gluten free and paleo. And best of all, you can stir up this low carb chocolate mug cake and enjoy it in under 5 minutes!
If you have never had a mug cake before, you may be skeptical of the idea of cake made in the microwave. I know I was – until I had one for the first time.

So despite any skepticism just give this healthy chocolate mug cake a try.


TIPS FOR MAKING LOW CARB CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE:
  • You can prepare the batter right in the mug – I do that when I am in a real hurry. But to ensure even mixing using a small bowl is an even better idea. Once the batter is ready just transfer it to your mug.
  • If you have one, use a straight-sided mug. In it the gluten free chocolate mug cake will cook more evenly than in one with slanted sides.
  • Use 1 big mug that fits at least 12 fl.oz. or divide the batter into 2 smaller tea or coffee cups for individual servings.
  • Keep in mind that microwaves come in a variety of different strength. When I first started testing this easy chocolate mug cake recipe in our apartment with a low wattage microwave it took about 2.5 minutes on high. Now with a larger stronger microwave, it takes only 1-1.5 minutes.
  • Let the chocolate mug cake cool for a minute or two minutes before you dig in. But you do want to enjoy them warm.
  • Top this simple chocolate mug cake to your heart’s desire with whipped (coconut) cream, chocolate chips, nuts etc.
Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons coconut milk or almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or sugar-free liquid sweetener*
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate chips** optional

Instructions

  1. In small bowl or large mug whisk together coconut flour, cocoa powder and baking powder.
  2. Add egg, coconut milk, coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla and mix until everything is every well combined.
  3. If you used a bowl for mixing ingredients, fill the batter into a large mug and microwave on high for about 1.5-2.5 minutes. Start checking at the 1 minute mark.
  4. Let the coconut flour chocolate mug cake sit for a couple minutes before eating. Optionally top with whipped coconut cream, chocolate chips and/or sliced almonds.
  5. Oven method
  6. To bake the chocolate mug cake in the oven preheat it to 350°F. Timing will depend on a number of factors (check blog post for details). I will take anywhere from 15-30 minutes. You want the mug cake to be set but still springy.
